The 21st Annual United Way of Rockland Fall Day of Caring is one of the largest volunteer community service events of its kind in all of Rockland County and the longest running, according to United Way. The day brings together volunteer teams from local companies to donate time and energy to local non-profits, which support individuals and families in need.
The event has been scheduled for September 19, and will take place at One Provident Bank Park Drive, home of the Rockland Boulders. There will be a breakfast and rally at 8:30 a.m. at the stadium to get the volunteers excited about their community projects. Afterwards, the teams will proceed to their projects.
The projects can range from power washing and landscaping to food and clothing drives. “These services are essential to our nonprofit partners,” said Mimi Vilord, president & CEO of United Way of Rockland. “These are projects that they couldn’t otherwise afford, so the volunteers are critical. Of course, sponsorship makes it happen! Without our corporate sponsors, we could never afford to put all of this together.”
